A 2006-2007 Yale University survey, conducted by Dr. Donald Green, found that students who used this curriculum made statistically significant gains in the number of questions they answered correctly about the Constitution. The curriculum increased the amount of information the students brought to bear when evaluating a hypothetical dilemma, and closed the gap between the highest achieving schools and the lowest.
